As I wrap up Unit 1 and think back over the material, it has been a blast! The students have learned a lot, the teacher has learned a lot and the code.org resources have been excellent. We have learned by doing and being active with the material, which has been great. I really believe my students have a very solid and intuitive understanding of the Unit 1 material.
One resource I have put together for my students is a Lesson Recap. I have created a Google Classroom Slide presentation and posted to my Google Classroom for each Lesson. I found there was a lot of really excellent material in the teacher notes that I was afraid the students didn't really pick up on as we discussed and participated in the lesson for the day. I am hoping the recaps will allow the students to fill in some gaps in understanding that I found following the 1st Assessment in this Unit. I look forward to the results of the 2nd assessment and if they are better the I will attribute part of that improvement to these recaps. I have attached one of my Unit recaps.
